Our  Review on Moto G Vs Moto E – Which one should you pick for yourself





Moto E is offering a lot for this kind of budget and will certainly set a standard for entry-level phones. With 4GB space by default, you can store upto 1000 songs (4MB each song).  We believe if frontal camera is not that important to you, and you are storing , upto 1000 songs, then Moto E is a great fit for you.  Even better, if you need more space you can add external memory cards.

We believe, the Moto G, on the other hand, will continue ruling mid-range segment. With a lesser screen and a lesser processor whose performance is occasionally noticeable, a more avid mobile user would be much better off with a Moto G than a Moto E.
